Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012: Haider Ackermann!

6 Mar

There is a reason why this designer was named by Karl Lagerfeld as a possible successor for the haute couture powerhouse Chanel. Anyone who understands how to sculpt luxe fabrics around the body with such sartorial precision, with a consistently accurate play of colour, texture, tailoring, draping, layering and those waist cinching effects…words fail me.

Presenting my best picks from the Fall 2012 collection of one of my favourite ever designers..Haider Ackermann! *big grin*


Look out for the Lanvin collection, it was pure gorgeousness.

Beautiful Beautiful Fashion At The 2012 Golden Globes

18 Jan

I wasn’t even going to watch the red carpet coverage of the Golden globes. After staying awake, cooing and tweeting all night last year, I just was too tired to try this year. However, I ‘stumbled upon’ a re-run of the coverage on E! and Angelina Jolie (+ a few other people) changed everything. This is my first ever blog post of an awards show and it is exciting.

I caught a glimpse of Angelina Jolie gliding out of her limo and on to the red carpet and I was spellbound. The dress, that flash of red at the shoulder, the soft draping, the way the silky fabric glided on her body, what a stunner!

At every interval, I saw some more stunners, Tilda Swinton had me in that edgy Haider Ackermann; Nicole Kidman was stunning in Versace and I loved Jessica Chastain in Givenchy. Of course some people bombed, in fact many people had me seriously wondering…’what happened to the stylists in Hollywood…???’ Well, here we won’t focus on negativity, we love beautiful things.

My favourite picks below.

It’s a new year, let’s make it fashionable! ;)

Paris Fashion Week: Sooooo elegant Haider Ackermann

3 Oct

I was waiting for Haider Ackermann with bated breath and it was definitely well worth the wait. There was a quality about his collection that made me want to be silent and just stare. It was sleek, elegant, luxe and soooo polished.

I have to say though that some pieces in the collection were a tad too showy, like ‘hey, watch the slits Mister!.’ But having said that, the combination of silks and chiffon with leather, the luxe way he injected jewel tones – plush emerald, electric blue, red – into black, was amazing. And that bow detailing on the back of the jackets? Speechless! Gotta have one of those jackets.

Overall, he does an amazing work with details. I love how he works with fabrics, the intricate knotting, the unusual bows. Viva Haider Ackermann, you’re da man.

Designer to watch in Paris Fashion Week: Haider Ackermann

29 Sep

Haider Ackermann is definitely a designer to watch this week. He gives an amazing spin to tailored leather jackets, and is right next to Balmain in my ‘must have jackets’ list.  The fit and cinched waist detail celebrates the feminine silhouette  to absolute glam proportions.

Given how besotted i am with jackets, fit and structure, this is pure bliss. I wait with bated breath for what he has to offer this Spring. Here’s a retrospective of some adorable pieces from his Fall 2010 collection.
